The Eagles expand 2019 tour with shows in Australia and New Zealand

The Eagles have expanded their 2019 tour with a newly-announced series of dates in Australia and New Zealand.

Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey will be accompanied by a full horn section and a full string section for the two-week, five-show series, which will begin in Auckland, NZ on February 26.

Tickets for the shows will go on sale Monday, October 15 via the usual outlets.

The trip down under will precede a recently-announced spring 2019 tour of the UK and Europe by the iconic California band that starts up in late May.

Currently playing concerts in North America, The Eagles will release a career-spanning box set collection entitled “Legacy” on November 2.

The 14CD/DVD/Blu-ray package presents all seven of the California band’s studio albums, three live albums, and a compilation of singles and b-sides alongside a pair of concert films: 1994’s “Hell Freezes Over” on DVD and 2005’s “Farewell Tour: Live From Melbourne” on Blu-ray.

A 15LP version of “Legacy” – which presents all of the music from the CD box without the video content – marks the vinyl debut of the 2000 “Millenium Concert” release and the long-awaited return to vinyl of 1980’s “Eagles Live” after being out-of-print for decades.
